Kylie Jenner And 14 Other Celeb Caught Lying Red-Handed

Yikes, these moments make me uneasy.

1. When James Frey lied to Oprah — and readers — about his memoir, A Million Little Pieces.

"I have to say it is difficult for me to talk to you because I feel really duped. BUt more importantly, I feel that you betrayed millions of readers."
ABC / OWN

A report showed that James Frey had lied about several events in his book, including how long he spent in jail. You can watch Oprah confront him here. The two eventually made up, seen here.

2. When Bill Clinton lied about his affair with Monica Lewinsky and, well, we all know how big that was:

CSPAN

Clinton was impeached for lying under oath.

3. When comedian Steve Rannazzisi lied about surviving the 9/11 attacks. He later admitted it was a lie.

“I was not at the Trade Center on that day,” he eventually admitted. “I don’t know why I said this. This was inexcusable. I am truly, truly sorry.”

4. When the entire phone call between Kanye West and Taylor Swift leaked, proving that Kanye and Kim Kardashian lied about Taylor approving the "Famous" lyric that referred to her as a "bitch."

6. When Milli Vanilli was exposed for lip-synching to all their songs — it was actually these singers, who detailed it all in an Oprah interview:
